The College of Pharmacy at Yarmouk University organized a free medical day at Al-Walid bin Abdul-Malik Secondary School for Boys in Irbid, in cooperation with the Jordanian Charity Medicine Bank, the National Program "Kingdoms Sons" and the Al-Maqari People's Charitable Association, and the Health Irbid and Education Irbid Directorates.

The event was held in celebration of His Majesty King Abdullah II's birthday and the Silver Jubilee of His Majesty's accession to the Throne.

A team of pharmacists and doctors from various specialties, Trust Labs, Alro'ya Eye Center, and the King Hussein Cancer Center participated in the medical day, in addition to a large number of students from the College of Pharmacy within the Drug Bank Assistants Program, and representatives from the local community in Irbid.

The implementation of this free medical day came as an embodiment of the memorandum of understanding that was recently signed between Yarmouk University and the Jordanian Charity Medicine Bank, with the aim of deepening the partnership in implementing charitable, humanitarian and awareness programs that will achieve Jordanian pharmaceutical security and enhance the skills of students in the College of Pharmacy.

A large number of residents of the eastern neighborhood of Irbid city benefited from the services of the medical day, which included diagnosis, medical examinations, and the provision of free medicines dispensed based on approved medical prescriptions.

The medical day included medical clinics in the specialties of internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, general medicine, orthopedics, pediatrics, chest and respiratory, eye examination, a medical laboratory for measuring blood pressure and sugar, and a pharmacy that contained a large number of medicines.

During the opening of the medical day, the Dean of the College of Pharmacy, Dr. Fadia Mayyas, welcomed the parties involved in organizing the free medical day, stressing the role played by the university in serving the local community in order to achieve its social responsibility.

Dr. Mayyas pointed out that holding the medical day in Irbid came in implementation of His Majesty's directives and the royal visions in activating the role of youth in engaging in the local community and voluntary work, and providing medicines for all citizens, with a focus on the weak and poor.

She added that the participation of students from the College of Pharmacy in the medical day allows them to gain practical and field experience in dealing with patients, dispensing medicines, and providing pharmaceutical advice on the optimal use of medicines.

For his part, General Manager of the Jordanian Charity Medicine Bank, Dr. Wasfi. Nawafleh, pointed out during his speech that what distinguishes the free medical days organized by the Medicine Bank in different parts of the Kingdom is their association with national and religious occasions engraved in the hearts of Jordanians, and added that it is an aspect of social responsibility to achieve pharmaceutical security and deliver medicines to the most needy areas and those who are unable to bear the costs of treatment.

On his part, the Director General of the National Program "Kingdoms Sons", Ashraf Al-Kilani, said that the Medicine Bank continues to achieve its goals by implementing free medical days in different parts of the Kingdom, serving the families of the poor and the less fortunate.

The medical day was a success, and it benefited a large number of people in the local community.

The College of Pharmacy at Yarmouk University is committed to continuing to organize such events in the future, in order to serve the local community and achieve its social responsibility.
